Welcome to the 432nd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and most difficult of August. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of all three mystery clips, which are connected by a theme. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
Hint: All three jams come from sets that start off the same way, but rapidly diverge after that.
Answer: Welp, at least he needed the hint this time? @Cactus_Mike pulled off another impressive win this week - back to back, three of four, and five of eleven now! - to crack this difficult trap-laden nut: 10/29/94 "Down with Disease," 10/29/13 "Down with Disease," and the totally not 10/29/XX "Down with Disease" but also D major jam from 7/8/03 "Harry Hood," all of which were played in second sets that opened with ... "Down with Disease." As mentioned in the comments, I try not to play dirty, but this week I did just that on freaking purpose and still lost. Monday, the difficulty drops several orders of magnitude - and remember: if you've won before, no answers on the blog before the hint! If it makes it that far...

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
